Yet more Obamacare casualties

Yesterday, Universal Studios, the Orlando theme park, announced that beginning January 1, 2014, when Obamacare takes full effect, it will no longer provide health insurance to its part-time employees.

As you know, beginning January 1, all health insurance policies offered by employers must contain a plethora of “whistles and bells” as mandated by our government.  That costs money…much more than Universal is currently spending.

Here is an interesting off-shoot of this decision.

Some employees reportedly are blaming the company, claiming Universal could offer better coverage that complies with the law if it wanted. 

This should make the nightly news. 

I can hear Chris Matthews of MSNBC’s “Hardball” shouting, “yet another evil corporation throws loyal employees to the wind for the sake of profits”. 

But, it won’t make the nightly news, much less a comment from Matthews.

Universal Studios is owned by NBC.

    Obamacare is a nightmare. The pieces are slowly creepy into our lives like cancer cells spreading until the complete package is wrecking havoc on all Americans.

    Obamacare is an unconstitutional power and money grab.? Mandating “bells and whistles” essentially forces employers to offer so-called “Cadillac” plans which our clever little demagogue-in-chief fanned class envy in cultivating support for levying punitive taxes on.? This is how a tyrant gets his subjects to demand their own subjugation.

    Ha, Ha, SOS, just when I plunk into despair, you come up with a post to make me laugh. The subtle irony used here, just awesome. What, you mean that the “Affordable Healthcare Act” is not affordable? Say it ain’t so, Joe (Courtney, that is, who is my rep).
